‘John Carter‘ could learn from ‘Wrath Of the Titans’ on how to make a trailer that’s thrilling but still tell you what the story is. The latest trailer shows Sam Worthington among mega monsters, and this will obviously make up for ‘Clash Of the Titans‘.
While director Andrew Stanton is telling fans to ‘trust’ Disney and the producers of ‘John Carter‘, Jonathan Liebesman’s ‘Wrath Of the Titans‘ shows they don’t need to say stupid things like that. They play it and don’t need to say it.
Yes, we may be a little harsh on ole Stanton and his ‘John Carter’, but when a director begins whining and crying to the press about their film’s bad tracking, it just looks pathetic. I love his Pixar films, but if you’re going to make a big summer movie, be prepared to get the brunt form moviegoers who’ve been royally screwed by Hollywood too many time to count. Rather than whine and cry, just shut up and show your movie and prove yourself right and the detractors wrong. What I love about the way ‘Wrath Of the Titans’ was handled was Sam Worthington apologized for ‘Clash Of the Titans’ and just got to work. Liebesman didn’t go on a crying jag and become a Stanton bitch, he just made what’s looking to be a fun action filled movie.
The marketing for ‘Wrath Of the Titan’s’ has been strong and each trailer improves on the last one without confusing the audiences on what it’s about. This film is easily going to make up for ‘Clash Of the Titans’ even though that’s not too hard to do…but the thing is, they’re going to make up for it. They didn’t feel the need to cry to the press about the mess, they just made a simple apology and went to work. Hopefully Andrew Stanton can take that lesson and just man up and move on to his next project.
